The focus of our Christmas Giving this year is our Shelter Me Program. Our goal is to provide needy Haitian families with building materials, guidance, and construction assistance so that they can build homes for themselves. We have also included many of the “classic” Christmas gifts from years past.

Home for Haitian Family      $350000ea The materials for an entire two-bedroom block house with a metal roof costs approximately $3500. This is a significant upgrade from the mud huts with mud floors that poor families typically live in. And a home like this will often house, not just a husband and wife along with their children, but potentially extended family as well.
Separate Materials for Haitian Home    We recognize that few people can afford to give the materials for an entire home. But several people and families giving blocks, cement, and roofing metal also provides a home. Here are some of the materials that can be given individually:          
Concrete Blocks $     100ea          
Bag of Cement $1000ea          
36” x 12’ White Metal Roofing Sheet $3000ea
More Options
Chickens  $1000ea Because chickens forage for themselves in Haiti, they are virtually free to raise – once you own the chicken, that is. This makes a chicken a great gift to a Haitian family. They provide regular protein from their eggs, potentially more chickens, and eventually chicken dinner!
Goats   $3500ea Like chickens, goats forage for most of their food, so they are also economical to keep in Haiti.  And a mother goat producing kids can be an excellent source of either meat or additional income.
